Every full moon some people turn into Weretoads. For one crazy night, every fly around is in danger. The Lego Weretoad MOC is created by Letranger Absurde. Built as an entry into the MOC Wars, where the challenge was to create a Lycanthrope type character that is not a dog or wolf. The end result is a weird mix of human, toad, and monster. The brick built figure features some really interesting parts. You can find Overwatch themed shoulder armor used for the chin/neck, a car hood piece used for the torso, various gray silver/gold bricks in the arms, and even a red horn used for a tongue. A lot of joints feature a full range of motion which means that this Weretoad can be displayed almost any way you can dream of. Just make sure any flies hanging around are safe.
Lego Monsters can be surprisingly horrifying. This Lego “Hercules” is a monstrous creation built by Buffoon. They used the scarab insect as inspiration. Which shows in the exoskeleton style design. A lot of these terrifying beasts use a lot of the Lego Bionicle pieces. I can honestly say that this build uses some pieces that are not entirely familiar. The skull head plates work well for the knee caps, but the other bright translucent blue pieces are really interesting. The plastic wings were used in a recent Ant Man release. Then there are a lot of horns, hooks, and hoses that connect everything together. A time tested way to make almost anything scary. The use of the transparent green/yellow is a great contrast to the blue and black. Maybe someone just needs to give it chance. Maybe Hercules just need a friend. Just make sure to leave the lights on.
If there was one theme I was not expecting to hear rumors that Lego would produce, its Scooby Doo. It seems that Lego has been working on a spooky theme, and now its seems an official Lego Scooby Doo theme is the top contender for this release. This new theme would be hitting shelves around May or June of 2015, and will consist of 4 sets. It seems that the iconic Mystery Van, a Haunted House, and two unknown sets are in the works. With the whole gang represented in Minifigure form. Fred, Shaggy, Scooby-Doo, Daphne, and Velma. Also expect to see a few of the monsters represented. I wonder if they will be regular Minifigures wearing costumes? Because that would be fun.
Monsters, Inc. has been a popular Lego MOC theme for the last couple of months. It always helps when a new movie (Monsters University) is on its way. A Lego Monsters, Inc. build is a little bit difficult. With a lot of round shapes and bright colors it can be hard to get the Lego to look right. Mike Wazowski is an extremely animated character which makes him especially difficult. Although, Dave Shaddix found a great compromise and has created a Lego Mike Wazowski and Door vignette. All of the details from the film are here, the door controls say “42,” the little M logo on the hard hat, and the canister all create a very recognizable scene. Also, the excellent proportions between Mike and the door. Now if only Mike Wazowski can find Boo’s door.
Mike Wazowski and James P. “Sulley” Sullivan are an unstoppable pair of monsters. Both of them successfully managed to save Monstropolis and usher in a new era full of laughter. Monsters, Inc is one of Pixar’s best films, and its prequel (Monsters University) has recently hit theaters. What kind of adventures did these two monsters get into during college? Maybe it’s time to go watch the film. A tiny Lego Boo would turn this duo into a frighteningly awesome trio.
